3 of 4 accused in anti-gay beating remain jailed
A Fulton judge refused to set bond on Monday for Christopher Cain, one of four men accused of beating a gay Atlanta man in an attack that gained national attention thanks to a video the accused made of it.
A Fulton County prosecutor called the Feb. 4 attack on Brandon White (top photo) a hate crime during the 15-minute hearing, according to the GA Voice. Georgia has no hate crime law, though the U.S. Attorney and FBI are investigating the case to see if it falls under a federal hate crime statute.
White appeared in court for the hearing. “I’m glad. I was afraid for my life,” he told WSB after the proceeding.
Cain (second photo) and three others—Javaris Bradford, Dorian Moragne and Dareal Demare Williams—are charged in the attack. Bradford was indicted in February but remains at large. Moragne was granted $40,000 bond in early March but remains jailed until a probation revocation hearing. Williams surrendered to police in Pennsylvania after fleeing and was returned to Atlanta on March 12. He remains in the Fulton County Jail.
